Sony VAIO Recovery Patcher (SVRP)

From VAIO Library
Screenshot of GUI version

SVRP is a utility designed to patch and combine split WIM (.sny) and .mod files from Sony VAIO recoveries, in order to bypass Sony's model checks. This tool can be used when the recovery discs refuse to install, as they were not made on the unit they are trying to be installed on. Basically, it's a recovery cracker.

It can patch .sny files, which contain the Windows installation in form of a WIM, and .mod files, which are applications (most of the VAIO apps, and others).

Current support

SVRP currently supports only .sny and .mod files. To check if you have, and how to get .sny and .mod files, check this guide.

This program does not yet support Windows 98, ME, 2000 and XP recoveries! Most if not all Vista, 7, and 8 recoveries are supported. Some Windows 8 recoveries use .sn2 files which are not supported yet.
